WEN support Wolverley Sebright Primary School in creating a new Outdoor Play Area
Wolverley Sebright Primary School has recently created a natural play area with support from parents and local businesses, including support from a number of our members.
Following the recent remodelling of the schools’ buildings, a pocket of land became available and the school wanted to put it to good use.
With the help of local businesses and parents, the school has been able to transform the space into a natural play area which the students can now enjoy.
The Worcestershire Education Network were delighted to donate £250 to the school to support the creation of this outdoor space, with Witley Jones donating a further £250.
A number of WEN members have also worked on the project with the school, providing a range of services.
Wall lighting for the space has been provided by member Paul Sweeney, of Black Pear Electrical, and fellow member Felicity Robinson, from Landscapes Naturally, has advised on how to create the area for Year 2 pupils, which will include a mud kitchen and book nook.
Shelley Reeves-Walters, Headteacher of Wolverley Sebright Primary School said: “We are a close community in Wolverley and the support of the businesses and hard work of the PTA bears testament to that. It will be a very special place for our Year 2 children, bringing to life the vision of their class teacher.”
Dave Manser, Business Development Manager at Witley Jones added: “My son is in Year 2 at Wolverley Sebright and I’d personally like to thank members of WEN who have supported this project. It was great to donate towards a worthy cause and to get our hands dirty and help bring the space to life.”
This is a fantastic project and we are happy to have supported the creation of the space through our donation. It was even better to see a number of our members getting involved, providing their services to help create an engaging space that students can enjoy and use outside learning to support their mental and physical health.
